Bio

The ink lines that would shape singer/songwriter/producer Hayden Calnin and his musical career were drawn in his teen years after his father gave him a guitar at age 14. He hasn’t gone a day since without playing it. Dabbling in bands through his teens led him to add drums and piano to his repertoire, until at age 17 he finally decided to take on vocals. A degree in film, with a major in sound design became Hayden’s entry point into the world of music production. From here on it was only natural that Hayden would begin recording his own songs at home.

Since releasing his independent debut EP ‘City’ in 2012 Hayden has supported the likes of Tom Odell, Matt Corby, Willy Mason, Oliver Tank and Missy Higgins. He’s played festivals including Falls Festival, Gorgeous Festival and NYE On The Hill and has received significant attention with international syncs for his songs on USA TV series ‘Suits’, MTVs ‘Awkward’ and new CW series ‘The 100’.

Debut EP ‘City’ and sophomore EP 'Oh, Hunter' are out now worldwide on iTunes.

This'll inevitably garner comparisons to Bon Iver and Matt Corby, but the wonderful melodies and drama in this makes it stand proudly on its own.

Pipes indeed. This song really snakes around - up and down - fragile and tough. No mean feat. Thanks for this one.

A great song with lush production. It's a style that's been put in the spotlight recently by acts like James Blake and Bon Iver - but it's exciting to hear an Australian act delving in to that territory.
